GetSimple Blog
The ETA for version 3.3.2 at this stage is about 1 week. I'm just waiting for the team of translators to finish with the language files, then it's just a matter of Beta testing, ironing out the last few kinks and then it will be released.

Thank you very much for your quick and very informative replies! I'll try 3.3.2 as soon as it's available :-)

what's this?

The first is a failure most likely because you don't have 'url_fopen' enabled in your php environment. The request sends the plugin name and version to my server to show what's new when an update is released. I had to do this with my server because extend doesn't provide this information via its api.

The second is a known issue with the rss that I haven't been able to solve yet. Adding the ';' causes a large number of php errors to show.

Hi,

Ok, it was a problem with the Magic Quotes. The server for some evil reason has them active...

hi,
just having installed GS and now the GetSimple Blog on a subfolder of my "project" I can not create a new post.
There is now a tab in the admin panel but all the functions don't work.

I have copied the folder "gs-blog" and the file "gs-blog.php" into the plugins folder. Isn't that right?

where can I find the latest beta as it was announced (3.3.2-beta1)
it should be somewhere on GitHub but I can't see a file to download there.

Go to the GitHub repo page, click issues on right, click releases at top. Link is also in the first post of this thread. The current beta does not include all languages. Please use with English US only.

uhebeisen: Make sure that the "Website URL" is set correctly in your settings. Go to: Admin->Settings->General Settings->Website URL. This could be the cause of your issues.

** UPDATE **

I installed the new beta version from github (v3.3.2-beta.1) and everything seems to be working great except for a few small issues/requests:

1) When I edit a post. The sidebar menu wraps below the editor window, see below.

[Image: edit-blog-post.jpg]

2) I noticed that when I add a link inside a blog post, that it's not recognizing the i18n %parents% tag (plural, not parent) for fancy URLs to allow for nested directories/pages. Instead of seeing this:
Code:
<a href="http://mydomain/contact/">Link Here</a>

This is what I see:
Code:
<a href="http://mydomain/%parents%/contact/">Link Here</a>

3) I would prefer to always select a blog image from the library instead of uploading them to the post. Is that possible?

Is there a known issue with GetSimple Blog where in Facebook shares are redirected to the main Index page due to Facebook spider seeing a redirect ?

The following will be treated as a redirect by the crawler:
A HTTP redirect
A <link rel="canonical" href=".." /> tag
A <meta property="og:url" content=".." /> tag

Using either manually generated Facebook share buttons or SumoMe share app I get meta image and meta description from the wrong pages shared but only on pages that are generated through the blog.  Interesting thing though sometimes the facebook debugger shows the correct meta information but the post still contains the wrong posts.

Have a look at feeddot . com , the main (home) page has the blog, the Hot Now pages are manually created.

Update - ( No response) - I see in the I18N forums that there is a redirect used by GetSimple Blog, Looks like I will have to remove it.
As a workaround I used I18n search and copied all the posts to separate pages.
To be clear the issue is not really GetSimple Blog - It is that Facebook Share post jumps to the wrong page or to the site root when it sees a redirect which GetSimple Blog seems to be using to move the user from the source page to the blog page.

I18N Search is on my opinion a much more flexible solution though it lacks an image Thumbnail in the search results. Next up will try to modify the I18n search results to include an image.

I just installed this plugin and wanted to try it, but it runs so slow. Whenever I click on a link in the backend, it takes about 30-40 seconds to load. Has someone expierenced the same?

edit: And when I deactivate it - all my website's content is lost...?! Luckily I made a backup

I haven't had any issues with slow response with Getsimple Blog. Perhaps it is on a web host with disk IO's saturated?

Hi! Great plug-in. I'm having an issue where my RSS feed displays HTML tags (<p>, <img src..). Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm not 100% sure the issue lies in this Blog plugin or elsewhere. Thank you.

I'm pretty sure I've fixed this issue in the next update coming soon.

Great! Also, the Date Published isn't displaying my RSS either.
For the record I'm only using the RSS to display a blog feed widget on my homepage. If there's a better way to display a feed of blog posts with excerpts other than RSS, I'd love to know.

I have the same problem. All upload -> Failed. 
Permissions? Rather not.
Nothing in logs.
Can't figure it out.

Hello. I think I found a bug in this. Not quite sure. On the excerpts page under each post there is "« Go back to the previous page" under each excerpt.

Also when downloading the 3.3.1 version it still says , "3.30". I know its small but could cause some people some headaches.

trouble:
when in getsimple-> settings area -> fancy url i will write:
%nondefaultlanguage%/%parent%/%slug%/
then in fancy url (enable fancy url in glob settings) i have a:
%nondefaultlanguage%/blog/post/testpost

my rewriterule is:
RewriteRule ^blog/post/([^/.]+)/?$ index.php?id=blog&post=$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^blog/tag/([^/.]+)/?$ index.php?id=blog&tag=$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^blog/page/([^/.]+)/?$ index.php?id=blog&page=$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^blog/archive/([^/.]+)/?$ index.php?id=blog&archive=$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^blog/category/([^/.]+)/?$ index.php?id=blog&category=$1 [L]

so its standard (default): how to change to start it corretly ?

the seccond question.. there is any possible to add blog in other languages? multilanguages blog ?
user plugin: scroll to top

anteroom: It's most likely permissions issues with your 'data' directory. Please make sure that the 'data' directory and all of it's descendants have write permission for the same user account that Apache/IIS runs under.

Inickel: This is a bug with the layout inclusion method. I'll fix this for when the next update comes out.

xxdex: I'm not entirely sure what your trying to do with the fancy Urls there. The blog itself does not support any kind of custom url scheme unless you were to modify the code directly. So, if you haven't changed the code, then fancy urls should work irrespective of what is in the GS settings area because the blog creates it's own urls. Maybe if you could explain a bit more what you are trying to do, I might be able to help you a bit better.

Converting the blog to be multilingual would be a massive undertaking. So, instead it's something that I am looking into for GSBlog's replacement, SimpleBlog (still in development).

My apologies to everyone for the very extended delay in releasing this latest update with all these fixes. I have been very busy in my work life so haven't had much time to work on it. I've also seem to have lost contact with most of my translators which means some of the language files are incomplete. I have decided that I will use Google Translate to update the remaining language files so that I can get this update out as soon as I possibly can. Expect to see it within the next 2 weeks.

Hi, I'm very sorry to hear that you're tied up with work. I'd like to thank you for the work you're doing in order to provide us all with a nice and easy blog plugin. Do you still plan on releasing v3.3.2? I could help out with the German and French translations! (Just tell me and I'll go ahead!) It would be a pity to see GetSimple Blog vanish.

Hello - I'm new here and need some assistance. I have created all the links explained in the help page and even created a special template page for the blog but I can't seem to get anything to appear in the main content area. Can someone explain what I'm doing wrong please. The URL is
http://clickmarlow.co.uk/ii/index.php?id=blog

I am right in assuming nothing changes in getting the content on the page <?php get_page_content(); ?>
Have a click on the site and you can see what is displayed when the search, archives, most recent links are clicked.
I am keen to get this working as it is a databaseless CMS and the blog is really simple - ideal for my needs. Well done.

Could be something in the template throwing it off. 
Try the default template (Theme) to see if it works there.

I had too many issues with the blog plugin and ended up using i18n search and specifying 100 characters snip to make the results like the blog page. I imagine  what ever the issue was I could have worked around it, but implementing the search function was easier for me and more flexible in the end I think. 
DO ADD custom fields and set up in your template the metafields for facebook sharing so you can be specific as to which picture and metadescription should be used for a share. 
Ping me if you need an example. dryland 404 at g mail dot com
